Clare’s senior hurling manager has paid tribute to his side’s young starlets ahead of tomorrow’s All Ireland hurling quarter final with Waterford.
Brian Lohan has been forced to blood as many as nine new players in this year’s championship series after being handed a long list of injuries and other absentees this campaign.
The Deise now stand in the way of a date in Croke Park for Clare, with either Munster champions Limerick or Leinster champions Kilkenny awaiting the winner in the last four.
Banner boss Lohan says his inexperienced side has continued to improve as they’ve progressed through the championship.
You can hear that interview in full on this evening’s Sideline View from 6pm.
Meanwhile, a former Waterford captain says his county will be locking horns with a Clare side full of confidence tomorrow afternoon.
The Banner come into the game off the back of two qualifier wins over Laois and Wexford, with Waterford having lost last weekend’s Munster final to Limerick.
Fergal Hartley, who captained the Deise to a 2002 Munster title, believes Clare are the form side going into the game.
